Loans That Don't Move + Unfathomable City

Loans That Don't Move + Unfathomable City

Thursday, 07 November 2013, 02:15pm - 05:00pm

COST: FREE

Longue Vue House and Gardens presents Loans That Don’t Move + Unfathomable City, an event to celebrate the exhibition The River Between Us at Longue Vue and the new release of Unfathomable City: A New Orleans Atlas. This program is an afternoon tour that explores architectural sites and landmarks that create physical and metaphorical connections between New Orleans and St. Louis, particularly through ideas associated with the exhibition and book.  Artists, community leaders and preservationists will speak at various sites.  Attendees will be encouraged to ask questions and share their experiences about the places, spaces and subject matters explored. Conversations will be recorded for a podcast available for future explorations.


Tour Schedule*:

2:30 pm – Board Algiers Ferry**: Ride to Algiers and back to experience the Mississippi River, while learning about The River Between Us exhibition and Unfathomable City: A New Orleans Atlas. Hear a reading from Unfathomable City’s co-author, Rebecca Snedeker.

3:25 pm – Visit a house being renovated by the Preservation Resource Center and explore barge board’s connection to St. Louis and importance to New Orleans’ architecture.

3:50 pm – Hear artist Ken Lum speak about his piece for The River Between Us with Keith Plessy, Phoebe Ferguson, and Jackson Knowles at Plessy Park.

4:20 pm – Learn about St. Louis’ Emile Frei’s stained glass contributions to New Orleans at Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos Catholic Church.

4:45 pm – Take a walk around the steamboat captain’s houses in Holy Cross while listening to stories of treasures and trade from Unfathomable City.   

*Tour times are approximate and are subject to change.

**Attendees are encouraged to carpool. Parking is available at the start of the tour on nearby streets (meter) and Central Parking garages ($6 for one hour). We will meet at the Algiers Ferry at Canal Street at 2:15 pm, and caravan to future sites together.

The River Between Us showcases works that reflect how the lives of people in both St. Louis and New Orleans have always been intertwined in the river’s role in US history. The exhibition features contemporary commissions and works, as well as historical objects.

    Ok I saved the © text as a .psd. I open and copy it, them go to Txt, Edit, Paste, to insert. I can then change all the properties before applying any transformation necessary for alignment. If there is a better way (and I am sure there is), please advise. Thanks

    Question to anyone: When creating the © txt for a photo, How to best save it for easy reuse? Been searching Photoshop CS6 for few hrs and I am apparently not asking the right question.

    If I catch the ferry on foot, will I be able to ride with someone, or should I just drive it?
